Welcome to the Middletown Church of the Nazarene. Thank you for taking the time to visit us online. Please feel free to browse around and see what is going on here at the Middletown Church of the Nazarene. If you would like to join us for Sunday morning worship, we have Sunday School at 9:00 AM, Prayer and Hospitality at 10:00 AM and Morning Worship at 10:15 AM.

As we gather together, we encourage you to REACH UP to God in worship and prayer. As we fellowship together, we encourage you to REACH IN to grow alongside the body of Christ. While you experience the love of God and receive love from others, we encourage you to REACH OUT to a lost world with the Good News of Jesus Christ.


Hurricane Update!
In addition to your prayers, one of the best ways Nazarenes can help with events like Hurricate Harvey is to give to Nazarene Compassionate Ministries as we can be sure the funds will be used to help those truly in need. Check out this link for more information.

When hurricanes, earthquakes, typhoons, tornadoes, or other catastrophic events hit somewhere in the world, our international Nazarene Compassionate Ministries and Disaster Response teams are always among the first to respond. One of the ways they respond is by distributing Crisis Care Kits to those impacted by the disasters. These kits come from local congregations just like ours! Please pick up a 2-gallon zip-loc bag in the foyer, provide all requested items, and return the filled zip-loc bag.

Packing List - Each CCK must contain only the items/quantities listed.

  • 1 Shampoo (12 to 18 oz.)
  • 2 Bars of soap (Bath size or larger.)
  • 1 Toothpaste (4 to 6.4 oz.)
